Online access at regular conference

I am involved in organizing a regular, old-fashioned conference, i.e., with
warm bodies attending at a single location. I would like to know what would
be involved in linking the live-in-person attendees with online attendees for
one of the sessions via a CU-SeeMe reflector. Most online attendees would
likely be limited to sending comments and questions in chat mode only. Can
CU-SeeMe be used for a moderated, Compuserve-type arrangement like this?

I have tried testing CU-SeeMe from a 28.8 modem, but have been unable to
receive any audio or video. I have only been able to communicate with other
testers at the Cornell test reflector in the chat mode. I am using the
Windows version .84b7. I can see the participant windows, but they're empty
and the transfer rates read "0" and "0.0". I have SoundBlaster16 and S3864
video cards. Do I need special hardware to simply receive audio and video?

I would appreciate any help with either question. Thanks.
